musical based on the songs of ABBA, returns to Los Angeles at the Pantages Theatre.  Performances begin Thursday, April 22 and runs through Saturday, June 12.

With more productions playing simultaneously around the world than any other musical, MAMMA MIA! is now THE WORLD'S # 1 SHOW.

Inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA's timeless songs, writer Catherine Johnson's sunny, funny tale of family and friendship unfolds on a tiny Greek island.  On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father brings 3 men from her mother's past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.  Songs including "Dancing Queen"; "The Winner Takes It All"; "Money, Money, Money" and "Take A Chance on Me" are all featured in this feel-good night of fun and laughter.

There are currently 11 productions of MAMMA MIA! running concurrently around the world (8 permanent productions and 3 tours). With a worldwide gross of over half a billion dollars and audiences of over 10 million people, MAMMA MIA! is acclaimed by the Associated Press as "quite simply, a phenomenon."

Produced by Judy Craymer, Richard East and Björn Ulvaeus for Littlestar in association with Universal, the creative team responsible for bringing MAMMA MIA! to theatrical life includes some of the most gifted and celebrated talents of musical theatre and opera. With music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, MAMMA MIA! is written by Catherine Johnson and directed by Phyllida Lloyd. MAMMA MIA! has choreography by Anthony Van Laast, production design by Mark Thompson, lighting design by Howard Harrison, sound design by Andrew Bruce and Bobby Aitken, and musical supervision, additional material and arrangements by Martin Koch.

A legacy of extraordinary songs and worldwide record sales of over 350 million have ensured ABBA a lasting popularity. The album ABBA GOLD, first released in 1992, has alone sold over 22 million copies.
